1 analyst only with a question. Folks, that should tell you all you need to know. When will the activist board member force hard changes? You certainly don’t need to be a brain surgeon to see this.
Most of the people I enjoyed working with left here a long time ago. Those were the people from whom something new could be learned every day because they were top experts. However there are still very capable and knowledgeable people here, but... — read more
Just heard David left Newpark. Wonder if he will be able to take work and talent.
Q4 financials out this afternoon. Fluids with a profit of $900k on an underwhelming .7 margin! But this is without corporate overhead of $26m. And read further down folks, $4.3m sales of property, equipment and assets contribute as well. Not to... — read more

That all the management at Newpark in Houston didn’t collectively have half a brain. Brash statement at the time, he didn’t mince his words. Truer words never spoken!
Continued quarterly losses with negative margins. By almost all metrics, failure at all levels. PH’s decision to “get younger” is the gift that keeps on giving! Enjoy this options boys! Fluids is the laughing stock of the patch.
5 spots in Oklahoma City Oilmens Golf filled by NP employees last week. Wouldn’t it be wise to use that for customers? More insanity, couldn’t script it any better🤣🤣🤣
Getcha popcorn ready!
Enjoy those options boys.....
With ex NP people? I know of at least 3.
When, where, and how many?
From CESDF q3 conference call (not sure who they were referring to, draw your own conclusion): At this point of the call, traditionally long-term followers of the company would expect a very granular operations and technical update for me. I want... — read more
$24m q3 loss for NP. Fluids contributes $19m loss with NEGATIVE 28% margins. But, but, but - we have increased market share. Amazing marketing plan NOT. Give it away and play the blame game on Hurricane season. PH AINT gotta clue.
Atrocious q2 earnings report.
Bottomed our at 251........
Down 13. Not good for any service company
Down 17. How low she go? I say rig count bottoms out in June at 250-275. Slim pickings for sure. Q2 numbers will be ugly folks. Reactive vs proactive management takes too long to adjust to market. What happened to all the “we can differentiate... — read more

Paulie claims NP is in excellent financial shape, consider the REAL facts: Newpark has $160m in long term debt $85m of the $160m is due Dec 2021 - not too far off Currently $40-50m in liquid assets. It gets worse: the $40-50m currently in... — read more

Would someone confirm this. I left in 2018. I wish you all the best and good luck as we battle through this pandemic.
for bringing down NR stock to a penny stock. We can blame it on the coronavirus and the oil/gas price wars but lets be honest, there has been a disease (lets call it the PH/PV/GP virus) at the company since 2014 and it was bound to destroy what the... — read more
From a brokerage analyst who sums up what we have ALL said the past 5 years: Some stocks are best avoided. We don't wish catastrophic capital loss on anyone. Spare a thought for those who held Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE:NR) for five whole years... — read more
Buckle your seat belt folks, she’s going to 400
Stage 1: 2000-2014. The builders. Those who built the company Stage 2: 2014-2020. The PV Millenials. Those who rode it straight into the ground Stage 3: 2020- . The fools. Those who stayed and watched it sold for pennies on the dollar — read more
Look out for your neighbors disappearing. If Corona doesn’t get them, maybe the RIF will. Round one is top earners. Round Two performance problems. Round three Is reserved for those that crossed GP’s path. Keep your head down and your resume fresh.
